Five days after Taxotere #1

I wish this could be a positive post, but I gotta be real here folks.  The chemo drug, Taxotere, has won today.  Despite six or seven hours of sleep, my fatigue level is 9 out of 10.  The runs have commenced with vengeance.   While no vomititus, food doesn’t look or sound good although I’ve managed to eat a meal and a cookie. Random, shooting pains hit various parts of my body on top of the general aches and pains that commenced after hormone therapy started some three months ago and the current pain med, Nucynta, is not touching them. I’m so clouded mentally….just slow.

Don’t know what else to say.

  1. Scott,
    Every day, you're in my thoughts. This is nothing but slow torture but what is the alternative? Thank God you have Derrell.
